We heard this afternoon from Jeremy Abshire, now former fiddler with The Grascals, announcing his departure from the group.

I wish the band much success and am grateful for my time there, and the many wonderful opportunities shared. I look forward to new musical adventures to come.

I’m currently available for gigs, sessions, tours. Stay tuned…”

Jeremy can be reached through his Facebook page.

We’ll post any comment we receive from the band.

UPDATE 3:55 p.m. – Grascal Jamie Johnson shared a few words about Jeremy’s departure:

“We’ve had a great run with Jeremy, and we love him. Sometimes band members go creatively in different ways. We wish Jeremy all the best. He’s a great guy.”

The band expects to use fill-in fiddlers through the end of the year, and make an announcement about a permanent replacement at that time.
